The International Maritime Organization, an agency of the United Nations, passed a resolution last week condemning piracy in response to a surge in attacks off the coast of Somalia, including a Nov. 5 incident involving the Seabourn Spirit cruise ship.
Meeting Wednesday in London, the IMO said the growing problem of piracy near Somalia should be brought to the attention of the United Nations Security Council, which could authorize military action.
